Hi

 

Can a curved section with bend be applied to sheet metal part.I make extrusion for easier clarity.I am wanting to place the curved section (extrusion for demonstration purpose) with bend in sheet metal part but all created in the sheet metal environment.

 

Is this possible?

Use Contour Roll.

I would do the rolled feature first.

I have not attempted your part yet, but after seeing your attempt I wish to revise my earlier statement.

Looks like if this is to work the Contour Roll should be created after the Face.
